NEED to??? No. But the question becomes, why are you replacing the camshaft? You should always replace the lifters when replacing the camshaft. A worn camshaft usually indicates that there will be other wear as well, but if you just want to squeeze a few more miles out of the engine, you might be able to get by with just replacing the cam and lifters.
first you have to remove the engine from the car, second, remove the head cover and remove the push rod. under the intake manifold, remove the wide cover and remove the hydrolic lifter (you might want to replace them) at the front of the engine (strap side) remove the pully and the pully cover. mark the place of the timing shaft with a pen and remove it from the engine. you can now pull the camshaft out of the engine but be carefull becaus the bearing are really delicate. to replace the rebuitl camshaft, make sure you place it in the right position with the crank shaft gear. there is a mark on the camshat and on the crank shaft that must me align.
